Named after William Shakespare’s tragic lovers, the origin of Romeo y Julieta as Habano date back to 1875. Wiston Churchill became a devote to the brand and following his visit to Havana in 1946, his name has not been commemorated on a band, but it has also served to describe the marque’s most famous size…Romeo y Julieta Churchills.

Recently I had the opportunity to finally sample a branded cigar that is readily available in my market, but typically supplied from different countries in Central America (editor's note: non-Cuban Romeo y Julietas, some of them are reviewed here). Typically these smokes have been dry, grainy and more akin to puffing on a pile of sawdust than a true fine quality cigar. I am happy to say that the Cuban Romeo y Julieta rose to the occasion and has offered a stout cigar with plenty of taste that should satisfy most any avid Cubano lover and beginner alike. It is a nice smoke at an economical price for a Cuban.

Since the release of the Hoyo Petit Robusto in 2004, the Petit Robusto size has proven a great success for Habanos. Cohiba, Montecristo, Partagas (Serie D No. 5 and No. 6) and Trinidad also jumped on the wagon, with similar variations but same characteristics. A short, stout cigar that combines a short smoking time with the coolness and comfort of a larger ring gauge. The response was great, so it was only a matter of time before another brand came up with a petit robusto.

The Romeo y Julieta Petit Churchill, released in 2012, is a classic petit robusto, measuring 4'' in length with a 50 ring gauge. Initially available in dress boxes of 25, 3-packs of tubos were to follow in 2013. My Petit Churchill had some time to rest after the long trip from Cuba and I am really looking forward to see what it has to offer.

I spotted this beautiful stick at Casa Fuster in Barcelona and, of course, I just had to pick up a sampler of these classic smokes. Even though I'm not a fan of the Romeo y Julieta brand, I had high expectations for this petit torpedo, mostly because of its age. 7 years (at least, because limited edition leaves are supposed to be aged prior to the release) seemed sufficient to me for the cigar to start shining, so I didn't wait long before firing one up. In fact, I was so impatient that I torched it 20 minutes after the purchase in a café nearby.

The Romeo y Julietta Churchill is as classic as classic gets. It is quite popular amongst occasional and seasoned smokers. A pre-1960 release, it has been in vogue since then. As some of you know, I do not hold the Romeo y Julieta marca in my heart but I was advised by a real hardcore aficionado that the new batches were up to par with the Churchill heyday.

Please welcome DrFever, our newest contributor. He starts with a review of the Romeo y Julieta Short Churchill, a well-known Cuban robusto.

This Cuban cigar comes in at just under 5 inches in length (4.8” to be exact) with a ring gauge of 50. One of my preferred cigar sizes.

This particular sample came from one of my 25 count boxes with a box code of April 2012. It is a fairly young cigar but I have found that these cigars do smoke well fairly young. I have been smoking these cigars since 2007, a year after their official 2006 release. In the past I have picked up some single tubes of these but this box was brought back to me by a vacationing neighbour while travelling to Cuba.

Romeo y Julieta Prince of Wales is an early 1970’s release discontinued in 2002. This was a gift from a fellow aficionado at the last Montreal Winter Herf that we help running. Let me say this right off the bat, I don’t like Romeo y Julieta as a marca. I didn’t try every one of them but I have no plans to do so. A cigar that’s 14 years old deserves a try though so here are my thoughts in a more condensed format than usual.
